See the bottom of the page for a comprehensive list of kindergarten webpages.
Listed below are some of the Internet-based programs we use at school. You may want to bookmark them or create icons on your desktop to access them quickly and easily. I will be providing you copies of your child's Lexia log-in information. For Study Island, use the same log-in with one small change (place your child's first initial in front of the 4-digit log-in) and the same password.
Lexia is the computer-based reading program our school adopted several years ago. Children move through various levels and are recognized by the school on the morning news when they obtain a new level. We have been using this program in class already.
Study Island is a program I have used in 4th grade. For the first time, they are including activities for kindergarten. Since our school has no regular math program, I will use this mainly for math instruction and review, but you may want to have your child work on the kindergarten reading activities at home as well.
Stafall is a reading/math program that our school has used to practice reading skills in a fun way for years. It now has a math component as well, but not all activities are accessible in the free version. Check it out and watch your child enjoy learning!
PBSKids is a web-site that allows your child to experience learning and fun with all their favorite KET and children's book characters.
Less educational, but still family-centered fun is the web-page sponsored by Nickelodeon's Nickjr.
